Tis the season for PUMPKINS! Just like most of the world, I am wholeheartedly excited with the seasonal appearance of pumpkins. My family, my friends, and even my coworkers know how much I love pumpkin! They always make my day when they see me and bring me a pumpkin goodie telling me, "I saw this and thought of you." AWWWWWWWW. I am loved! or either very loud about my pumpkin obsession....HMMM ;)
To kick off the beginning of Fall and Fall yummies, one of my best friends and I had a mini pumpkin kitchen party!
Here's what came of it:
Pumpkin oatmeal cookies with pecans and dark chocolate chips
Homemade pumpkin spiced lattes
